'The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct' (ALL) Dead Giveaway Contest Wants You In The Game

by Rainier on Oct. 25, 2012 @ 1:23 p.m. PDT

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct is a do-whatever-you-need-to-survive first-person action game allowing players to assume the role of the crossbow-wielding survivor Daryl Dixon, alongside his overbearing brother Merle, on a haunting, unforgiving quest to make their way to the supposed safety of Atlanta.

Think you’re tough enough to survive a horde of undead walkers?

The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct takes the undead and brings them out of the TV show and into console gaming systems in a new, terrifying way.  The iconic walkers will relentlessly hunt down players like their television counterparts, using a combination of sight, sound and smell.  As Daryl, players will need to tread carefully throughout each new area they explore.  Once discovered, it doesn’t take much to attract an unstoppable horde of undead walkers, so every threat needs to be assessed, and every situation analyzed.  Players will have to choose between whether to stay and fight while risking a gruesome death or using stealth to avoid the undead.  No place is truly safe for Daryl as he makes his way through the Georgia countryside in this new, post-apocalyptic world.

Resources are scarce and scattered inThe Walking Dead: Survival Instinct, and gamers will have to not only ration supplies, but carefully consider their food, medical needs, ammunition, and other goods as survival in the game is based upon wit and intellect more so than simple, sheer skill.  In order to endure this constant state of danger, players will have to do all they can to silence the noises they make and avoid detection.  Throughout his journey, Daryl will encounter a slew of other characters that can help or hurt him in a variety of ways, and whether or not they accompany him is completely up to player choice and represents just some of the major decisions that will constantly be made while fighting to survive.

AMC’s The Walking Dead “Dead Giveaway” contest is an eight-week event giving fans an opportunity to win a gruesome role in The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct.

Clues are revealed during new episodes of The Walking Dead season three on Sunday nights at 9pm on AMC. Fans can enter the clues online and each week one lucky winner will be chosen to appear as a character in the game! Terminal Reality will then use photos of his or her facial likeness to create a unique character whose backstory and chilling death scene may be encountered by players during The Walking Dead: Survival Instinct. As on the show, inquisitive survivors will be able to piece together how these characters lived before uncovering the scenes behind each of their horrific ends.

Each contest winner will be hidden in a different level. There will even be a special challenge to track down all the winners.

Every new episode between now and Sunday, December 2, 2012 offers a new chance to enter and win!
